PRADAS BOOK GROUP (Wednesday, August 20 at 6:30pm)
PRADAS (A Group for Adults Reading Teen Novels) Open to the Community Wednesday, August 20, 2014 6:30-7:30 p.m. Books & Company Lisa N. will lead a discussion on If I Stay by Gayle Forman Now a major motion picture, starring Chloe Moretz! In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen ­year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heartwrenchingly beautiful, this will change the way you look at life, love, and family. (September~TBD)

As she hikes to a secret tryst, she encounters a valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She understands it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media. As the community lines up to judge the woman and her miracle, Dellarobia confronts her family, her church, her town, and a larger world, in a flight toward truth that could undo all she has ever believed.

Afternoon Book Group Open to the Community Thursday, September 18, 2014 1:00-2:00 p.m. Books & Company Ken will be leading a discussion on The Bohemian Flats by Mary Relindes Ellis (October ~ TBD) Shell shock, lands Raimund Kaufmann in a London hospital, a victim of the war but also of his own efforts to get out of Germany and build a new life in America. While his recovery eludes him, his memory returns us to to the Flats, a milling community on the Mississippi River, where Raimund and his brother Albert have sought respite from the oppressive hand of their older brother, now the master of the family farm and brewery. In Minnesota the brothers confront different forms of prejudice, but they also find a chance to remake their lives according to their own principles and wishes--until the war makes their German roots inescapable.
